Among the events we quickly come across in this programme are the rebellion lead by Boudicca against the Romans; an 18th century indigenous Australian who used guerrilla warfare against the British Empire; the Liverpudlian woman whose work lead to New Zealand becoming the first nation to establish universal suffrage; and the place where the first gun shots of World War One took place.
